Soapstone is unique in many ways. This material has been used throughout history for cookware and art. Its high density makes it perfect in use for heating and cooking. This same property also makes it chemically inert. This is the same stone that has been used in science and chemistry labs for many years. What most people think is a new idea for counter tops, is actually one of the original materials used in counter-tops for the last two hundred years. Acids and other chemical liquids do not harm this stone in any way. Extreme high levels of heat do not leave a mark. So go ahead put a hot pot directly from the stove or oven right on your counters. No fussy clean-up use your cleaning method of choice. Always bacteria free. Never chemically seal this stone. It is already sealed naturally with the stones lack of porousness. No natural stone can match it.
